International Management Programme
Realise your leadership potential, maximise results through your people
22-26 October 2007, Nairobi
Do you need to increase the effectiveness of your relief, development, or human rights programmes?
The International Management Programme is designed specifically for INGOs to develop their “rising stars” and international managers who have further leadership potential. This intensive 5-day programme was designed by The Management Centre (=mc) in conjunction with People in Aid to help INGOs:
“Outstanding in every respect! It was a well-structured programme with lots of interactive learning. The trainers had a strong grasp of the challenges faced by INGOs and I left the programme with a comprehensive toolkit, which I can apply to my work immediately.”
To address the need for highly effective and flexible management, a number of INGOs including Concern Worldwide, HIV/AIDS Alliance, WWF, and VSO have contributed to the programme content. The core modules include:
This programme is suitable for both new and experienced international managers, particularly those who manage widely dispersed or multicultural teams.
"We work with =mc on a whole range of programmes from leadership to senior team development to international management programmes. They are fun, challenging, engaging and, above all, they provide practical skills and tools that really work.”
